Unsigned singer/songwriter Emma Wells is the exciting new home-grown musical talent from Chester. Emma has loved music from a very young age and has recently broken through with her own unique blend of contemporary and mature soul music. Emma has many different musical influences from the genres of soul, country, folk and pop amongst others.
This is the official Tumblr site, where you can find everything Emma Wells all in one place. Make sure to put this page in your favourites and be the first to receive brand new music, videos, releases, gig dates, events and any other announcements before everyone else.
Hey guys, here goes with the first post on the new-look Emma Wells blog! As we all know, Emma has very recently completed her first solo recording project with the highly-renowned artist development academy Major Music, in London. Her debut EP is going to be released this November and we are about to embark on a sizeable and rather exciting promotional campaign, with the aim of driving Emma’s music out to the masses and creating as much interest as humanly possible, during the build-up to this release!
Part of that campaign will involve a number of live events, starting with an intimate and exclusive Acoustic Live Lounge gig at Woodcote House in Chester, which takes place on the evening of Saturday 1st September and will be performed to a limited number of very lucky guests (ticket info etc to follow very soon).
This will be followed by another live music event at Alexander’s in Chester, off the back of the highly successful sell-out launch gig there in May of this year. In fact, because of the level of interest generated by the event back in May, three more of these nights will take place between now and Christmas: 16th September, 28th October and 9th December (all Sunday nights)! What’s more, we are very glad to announce that, in a bid to support up-and-coming musical talent in the Chester area, we will be offering three support slots on each night to talented local artists who are serious about their music and making a career in the industry - we know all too well how difficult it is to get opportunities when you’re an unknown solo artist starting out!! Tickets will be available for these events really soon, more news on this to follow.
There will be plenty of other announcements about Emma’s music during the build-up to 12/11/12. First though watch out for the pics from Emma’s album photo shoot in August and, more excitingly, look out for Emma’s first official music video which is being shot at the start of September, for the lead single from the forthcoming EP!!
One last note - we’d like to hear from talented musicians in the Chester area this month. We have one or two great opportunities at the moment, for strong musicians to accompany Emma as part of her full live band at the above-mentioned events and much more. In the longer term, there will also be further opportunities to get involved in song-writing and musical production, for those who are interested in these areas! We can offer talented people many incentives, please get in touch with me at email@example.com if this sounds like a project you’d like to be an integral part of!
Until next time, thanks for reading - please feel free to contact me by e-mail if you’d like to know any more at all.
